I'm new the forum and I just bought The 2012 Salomon "Twenty Twelves" in 171cm. I am 5'10, 190lbs with all ski gear on and have skied/snowboarded for 20+ years. I have skied on 167cm K2 recon (2006-07) for quite a few years when I'm not snowboarding.
After MUCH reading about Twin tip, rocker/camber/rocker skies like this, I am now ordering the 186cm (I know 179 may be ideal but not as cheap/available right now online). I am just worried I won't have much stability at speed on groom or crud at 171cm.
Any thought on which would be better for me? Love groomers, trees, Hitting bumps at all speeds and want to ski backwards occasionally or the fun 180 off a drop, etc.I will do some moguls as well but not always my preference.
As far as park, not so much .... a few table tops when I feel comfortable - (I'm getting too old to wreck myself) although I will do some powder when it's available as well ;)
Thoughts? Anyone have these in a 186 or 171? I will need to return one pair.
